The Italian outfit finished second in the top flight last term but have endured a stuttering start to their current campaign, sitting in the bottom two with just five points from their opening six games.

Totti has come in for criticism for his part in the poor start, with some commentators suggesting the 34-year-old is holding the team back.

But the Roma skipper, who has been at the club for his entire career, insists he is not above being dropped if the management believe he has become a burden to the side.

Writing in Il Corriere dello Sport, Totti said: "I have worn this shirt for 21 years and for more than 10 as the captain of this team.

No 1 fan

"I have laughed and cried about the results we have achieved, but I have always done so with the spirit of a No 1 fan and a No 1 professional within this team.

"I would never allow myself to be put in a situation of privilege with respect to the other Roma players.

"Moreover as the captain of Roma I confirm that I don't want to be this team's problem.

"If whoever with the decision-making power in this club believes that I have become a problem for this club, they must say so to me, then I can make my decision because I don't want to be a burden on anyone.

"I have always been and will always be available to this team and these colours to try and make our fans dream and to make our Roma win."
